ASD Spring Upgrades

Thought I would start sharing our 2018 upgrades as we get them done. Spent a few boat dollars at the Boat show.

Some of the upgrades will be:

1. Stove
2. Auto Pilot
3. 12' MFD
4. Helm Chairs

Here is the first. A new stove for the Admiral. She did not like the old Princess stove as it was mounted too low and you could not put a very large pan on the burner. Plus these stoves are no longer made so parts are sometimes hard to get.

We considered a gas stove, but I didn't want to mess with all the plumbing, storage box etc. Besides, I am an electric boat and have no issues starting the Gen set.

The new stove is a Force 10 with a ceramic top and they sell you a conversion/trim set for replacing an old Princess stove. Installing the new stove became a PIA as the new stove sat to low and was not level with the counter top. In fact it was 3" too low! The Admiral wanted the cook top level with the counter.


So how do you raise the stove? I called my friends over for ideas. We were thinking of a box to raise it, but there was no way I was putting wood under the stove. It so happens I found some bricks that were perfect. I took some liquid nails and glued them down. Fits perfectly, well kind of.

I had to modify the trim kit to match the new height. Hack saw and drill took care of this issue. The stove sits in a SS tub so I had to predrill a few holes and screw down tight!

All that is left to do is calk the edges and make a trim piece for the hole under the stove.

She tried it out and she loves it. Heats a lot faster than the old one and she can now put a full size frying pan on top. first pic is the old princess stove, then the SS tub and then new stove. Before and after modifications.

Stuff is starting to arrive at WM, so next project coming soon.

Nice job Bubba! Guess your Admiral got tired of my Admiral flaunting her new stove eh? Glad I could help you out with more improvements. I used some Aluminum square stock under ours. Nice to see the manufacture made a trim kit, I had to make my own.
OK, one down and three more primary to go. Only 76 more secondary projects.
LOL

Tom, I just went through the same exercise last winter......removed the original Princess 110 volt 3-burner with oven and replaced it with a similar Force 10 unit. It was the same dimensions and fit nicely in the same hole. We like a conventional oven and I really liked that it was a drop-in replacement. Sure Marine in Seattle was very knowledgeable and helpful, getting me dimensional drawings and product info. While I was at it, I also replaced the counter tops and re-plumbed the boat with PEX tubing, but that's another story!

Tom,
You gonna wait until you receive the new chairs to post? Pretty sure the mods your gonna do to support the new base units will be a lengthy post itself.

Wont be back up to the boat until April, otherwise I’d come over and drink your beer and “Stupervise”.

When Tom is talking big screen, I think he is talking sportcenter NOT navigation - but I could be wrong...

Tom that's a nice upgrade to the galley. I'm sure your Admiral is going to love it and you're going to benefit from all those extra-nice meals.


BTW, on a different subject how are things coming with the suits over the jerkoff that crashed into your dock?

I bought two new Todd Helm seats with a bolster and new pedestals from Spring field. I am contemplating lowering the head lining in the salon and running bolts through a back plate. The seats I currently have uses screws and not bolts. Yep hit a wave and down I went seat and all. Re-drilled the holes and used gorilla glue on the screws. No issues to date.

Wow Tom, an AP! Does Force 10 make a drop in cook top only for Princess replacement? Are you with 2018 cruising plans yet?
